Several decks are dominating the January 2023 ranked mode meta in Clash Royale right now. Here's a look at the decks, their win rates, and the cards you'll need to build them.
Two main factors decide how well you perform in ranked mode: skill and, of course, a good deck. Now, skill is something that you pick up over time. But decks, well, decks are something you can instantly pick up. If you know which decks to use, you could be looking at a string of consecutive wins - that is, if you have the skill.
With that in mind, we've put together the best decks that you can currently use in Clash Royale ranked mode. They're powerful, dynamic, and offer various answers to your opponent at any stage of the game.
December has set up the new year with a bunch of changes after the Clashmas update and Mighty Miner rework. We've taken these into account and will show you the ten best decks you can use in Ranked mode (also known as The Path of Legends).
